This is the most recent iteration of my course "Men, Women and Travel: A History of World Tourism." It focuses on gender and tourism, as reflected in the readings and takes a world perspective, focusing on travel and travel accounts from the earliest through the Grand Tour of the early modern period, and the growth of the tourism industry in the last century. Comments are always welcome.
The H-Diplo publication schedule for the period 06 to 17 July is as follows:
Week of 06 July:
I recommend taking a look at the work of Alexandra Minna Stern, who studies reproductive justice and the eugenics-based sterilization policies in the United States. For a contemporary angle, Stern has made a case for reparations to those still living, especially for Latina women in California.
Hi Justin -
I recently published a book on Darwinism in the Galapagos that deals with social justice and conservation: On the Backs of Tortoises: Darwin, the Galapagos, and the Fate of an Evolutionary Eden (Yale UP 2019).
I have so many suggestions. But in an EJ course I teach (primarily non history majors, mixed level), I use Christopher W. Wells, ed., Environmental Justice in Postwar America: A Documentary Reader (Seattle: University of Washington Press, 2018) as a primary source reader. It has most of the most relevant primary sources for U.S. EJ history including photos, poems, and statements by Black, brown, and indigenous folks. I also assign Wangari Maathai's Unbowed, and undergrads tend to love it (if they actually read it).
Lindsey Dillon's case studies of Hunter's Point in San Francisco are great:

Thank you very much, for everyone who is interested I would like to point out that there is a section on the above mentioned website about slavery in Russia and Central Asia, with some selected bibliography of primary sources and scholarly literature.
